“Up Close and Personal”
July 6 – 29, 2018 at Bromfield Gallery 450 Harrison Ave, Boston, MA
Reception: Friday, July 6, 6:00-8:30 PM

Two of my recent self-portraits were chosen for this juried exhibition at Bromfield Gallery. The show addresses “contemporary culture regarding the realms of the personal vs. the public, in artwork that provokes, challenges, and illuminates.”


There are two overlapping areas of investigation demanded by my conditions as an artist, as a parent to a young child, and as a person living with chronic pain. I must contend with both the disparity between inner self and experience in contrast with one’s outward presentation and with the split identity required to be both an artist and a mother.

These prints are part of an ongoing series of self portraits made from selfies taken during migraine attacks.
